The Wickhams: Christmas at Pemberley
Nov 19 – Dec 19, 2021
By Lauren Gunderson and Margot Melcon, Directed by Sarah Hawkins Rusk
Welcome back to Jane Austen’s Regency England. Pemberley’s servants navigate their own drama downstairs in the kitchen while preparing the holiday for the Darcys’ guests. But their work is interrupted by the unwelcome arrival of Lydia’s husband George Wickham — the sworn enemy of Mr. Darcy. The Wickhams is a heartwarming holiday tale that explores the confines of class and the generosity of forgiveness. This is a companion piece to our 2019 hit, Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley, although you don’t need to have seen it to enjoy this show!

“…THE WICKHAMS is as witty and wonderful as its sister play… It is a truth universally acknowledged that Gunderson and Melcon brilliantly capture the heightened idiom of Austen’s world. What makes this writing team so remarkable…is the consistency of their plays’ characters with their originals in the novel. …enjoy the splendid holiday gift that is THE WICKHAMS.” —TwinCitiesArts.com. “…In the tradition of the source material, there is a powerful (without being overbearing) feminist message to THE WICKHAMS: CHRISTMAS AT PEMBERLEY. …a lovely holiday concoction: melt in your mouth, with just a touch of spice.” —TalkinBroadway.com.
